Fiddle solo, Micheal (Whitey) Andrews - guitar, Decca 12015. This is the flipside of Coleman's well-know medley of reels, Bonnie Kate/Jenny's Chickens. The Wandering Minstrel has become popular with pipers, through the playing of Seamus Ennis, who wrote that his earliest memory of hearing it was on this record. Fasten the Leg (in) Her was recorded by Patsy Touhey on cylinder. Earlier printed versions of the tune were titled "Fasten the Leggin," suggesting that it was corrupted over time. Coleman's Cross was a spot in Sligo much favored for a crossroads dance.
The tunes on this track are still played today as a set in Irish music sessions the world over, which is pretty amazing considering this track was never included on any Coleman LP, tape or CD reissue. The generation who had heard the 78 version passed the set along to later players who often didn't realize Coleman had put the three tunes together. Whitey Andrews, by the way, is playing a tenor guitar tuned CGDA.
